Karla Kane & Fun of the Pier

Saturday, September 2, 2017

Live indie pop, from both sides of "the pond!"

It's a musical meeting of the minds between the San Francisco Bay Area and Nottingham, England!

Local singer/songwriter Karla Kane, accompanied by guitarist Khoi Huynh, will be joined by Fun of the Pier, an English acoustic-pop band making its California debut.  Here's what's in store:
  • Original folk and indie-pop songs 
  • Catchy melodies, intelligent lyrics, & sweet harmonies
  • Vocals, ukulele, acoustic guitar, and bass 
  • Transatlantic collaborations between local and international artists
No preregistration is necessary to attend.  The event is free, and beverages will be provided, both thanks to funding from the Friends of the Menlo Park Library.

About Fun of the Pier
